|Broken Heart Trick Lock|
Using the airmail option was more expensive but it arrived within a couple of weeks. I was like a child at a funfair unpacking another very large hoard!!!
Having recently reviewed another of Rainer Popp's fabulous Tricklocks (the T3), I have definitely gotten a taste for Puzzle Locks. So I ordered the Broken Heart Trick Lock from Puzzle Master. It is rated as a level 5 (the easiest level). It is nicely packaged in the Puzzle Master plastic clamshell with only the instructions to open the lock. It is really quite attractive, made from brass in a heart shape and provided with 2 keys also having a heart motif. It isn't particularly large measuring 13 x 6.4 x 1.3 cm. It does feel like a nice quality puzzle. No solution is provided and it doesn't appear to be available for download either but do not worry about this - you won't need a solution.
So the obvious thing which you just HAVE to do is put the key in the lock and turn it! Don't argue! You HAVE to try it - one day it might work!! Obviously this time it doesn't - the key won't turn. So you compare the 2 keys (they are both identical - one is just a spare) and you examine the lock for other clues. There really aren't many things you can try and I opened this one within about a minute. So not really particularly puzzling!

I am pleased to own it as it does look particularly attractive on the shelf with my other puzzle locks.
I have managed to acquire another of Rainer popp's locks the T2 which should be arriving any time now.
